The successful candidate will be appointed as Social Media Editor on the journal’s Editorial Board, will be provided with guidance and data to support them in their role, and work with the Editors and Publisher to build awareness of Journal of Urbanism by connecting with the journal’s community online. They may also be invited to join journal meetings, either virtually, or in person (depending on location). Taylor & Francis will provide a small stipend for the role to cover any journal-related expenses. As an Editorial Board member, they will also receive and online subscription to the journal and a 30% discount for Routledge, Taylor & Francis books.

Submitting your Application

If you would like to apply for the position of Social Media Editor, please apply with the following:

  • Brief CV: one-page maximum.

  • Cover letter: outlining how you meet the attributes listed above, your vision for the account, and how you would build awareness and maximize dissemination of journal content.

  • Three sample posts: suitable for three different social media platforms.

    • This could be for example Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn, or, for example the Chinese equivalents, Weibo, WeChat, and Maimai, as appropriate to where you may be based.

    • The posts should include all text and media related to the post, and pay due regard to the conventions, character and/or word limits relevant to the platform, and include any necessary or desired links, or ‘tags.’

    • The three different posts should all be promoting the following article: Conviviality in the city: experience-based spatial design against the segregation of places.

    These can be sent through as a document, though you may find it easier to actually post from any existing social media accounts you have and send through direct links to the posts.
